BOGIA District in Madang Province will see three new Day High Schools ready to take in Grade nine student in the 2022 Academic year.
They are Ulingan Day High School, Bosmun Day High School and Being Day High School which will cater for displaced Manam Island students in the Care Centers.
Member for Bogia, Robert Naguri, said these three high schools were registered in April this year for Grade 9 intake for 2022 Academic Year.
“My plan is to establish a total of 5 Day High Schools in the District so that we can create enough Grade 9 spaces for our children. Eventually two of them will be converted into boarding high schools in future,” he said
He said the three schools are being constructed and ready to take in Grade 9 students.
Mr Naguri hope to build two more in the district; one in the interlands and one along the Ramu River.
The establishment of these high schools was funded through the District Services Improvement Program (DSIP) and over half a million has already been spent.
Mr Naguri said as stipulated by the Government’s vision of Living No Children Behind, Bogia District wants to ensure it has enough educated people to take Bogia into future.
He said education is one of the pillars he would be focusing on as part of human resource development for Bogia District.
